A few weeks ago, a reader sent me an email asking for advice. Her teenage son told his friends and their families that his mom is a “crazy prepper.”
One of these families lives nearby and regularly takes in illegal aliens who are passing through. Her concern is that when the shit hits the fan, all these people will come to her for help.
She wanted to know what to do to stop that from happening.
This is why it’s so important not to tell everyone you’re a prepper. When they run out of food, they’ll come to your home.
And since you won’t be able to help everyone, you’ll have to make some very difficult decisions.
But what if it’s too late and everyone already knows you’re a prepper? Here’s a few things you can do.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
